Disney hails warm critical reception of Cars 2: The Video Game

Disney Interactive Studios has expressed its delight at the level of critical acclaim afforded to its recent movie tie-in Cars 2: The Video Game.

As the publisher prepares to launch the Nintendo 3DS edition of the action racing game, it has expressed pride at the success enjoyed by the Xbox 360, Wii and Nintendo DS versions, which were released in June 2011.

Created by Avalanche Studios, which also made last year's well-regarded Toy Story 3: The Video Game, the title recreates the excitement of Pixar's latest movie with impressive visuals, multiplayer action and gameplay that combines racing with high-octane spy adventures.

The game has received glowing reviews from the likes of IGN, the Sunday Mirror and Toxic.

John Blackburn, vice president and general manager of Avalanche Software, said: 'It's very rewarding to see how members of the media have jumped behind the wheel to become agents of CHROME in support of Cars 2: The Video Game.'

The Nintendo 3DS version of Cars 2 is coming this Christmas and features glasses-free 3D visuals, StreetPass communication options and more.
